(The Diplomat, By Ankit Panda) Rex Tillerson's speech this week on India offered a new insight into how the Trump Administration plans to counter China's Belt and Road Initiative, a plan that both the US and India have been wary of since its inception. Tillerson mentioned the concept of a "free and open Asia-Pacific" numerous times in his speech, and Trump may even mention the matter at an upcoming speech in Vietnam. Much of what has been revealed about this countering strategy reflects the ideals of the Obama administration's views on Asia.
